• What is AIS math?

     
    A.I.S. stands for Academic Intervention Services.  Academic Math Support is a supplemental program which supports the Common Core standards in Mathematics.
     

    How does a student qualify for services?

     
    A student is eligible for services based on results of the New York state assessments, NWEA  testing (local testing completed on the computer), in-house assessments and teacher recommendation.

     

    How often does a child receive services?

     
    Students may receive services two or three times per week.  This takes the form of small group instruction or a combination of small group instruction and support offered in the classroom during the math lesson. 
     

    When are services provided?

     
    Every effort is made to create a schedule that does not conflict with core subject areas or specials such as music, art or physical education.  
     

    What happens during small group instruction?

     
    During small group instruction, time is spent developing number sense and improving understanding of the four operations and their applications especially in the form of word problems. In addition, attention is given to concepts currently being taught in the classroom.
